Curbside Leaf & Brush Collection
HOW TO DISPOSE OF GRASS, LEAVES, & BRUSH CURBSIDE
BRANCHES: Residents may take branches to the Millfair Compost Center for FREE. Customers of Advanced Disposal may also place branches curbside during Brush Collection Week (September 9th – September 13th). Branches MUST be cut into 4ft. sections and bundled for curbside pickup. Branches CANNOT be placed in the recycle toters as this contaminates the curbside recycling program.
LEAVES: Residents may take leaves to the Millfair Compost Center for FREE. Customers of Advanced Disposal may also take advantage of the 5 scheduled weeks of curbside leaf collection. ALL leaf waste MUST be placed in clear/transparent bags during the scheduled leaf collection weeks on your normal pickup day. Bags must be placed separate from trash and recycling containers and CANNOT contain GRASS and branches! Leaves CANNOT be placed in the recycle toters as this contaminates our curbside recycling program. A third truck from Advanced Disposal will pick up the leaf bags on your regularly scheduled collection day.

GRASS: Grass MUST be bagged and placed curbside for weekly trash collection. An alternative to bagging grass would be to use a mulching lawn mower. Grass may also be composted in a backyard composting bin if chemicals are not used on the lawn. Mix grass with leaves and aerate regularly.
